Overview

Wicked Lies (Wicked Bay) by L. A. Cotton

The third book in the bestselling Wicked Bay series from L A Cotton

To the outside world, seventeen-year-old Kyle Stone has it all. A future playing the sport he loves, money and status, and his forever girl by his side. But Kyle’s good at pretending; hiding what he doesn’t want others to see. Because Kyle has secrets, the kind that can change everything.

Pretty, popular, and dating one of Wicked Bay High’s rising football stars, Laurie Davison is living the life most girls only dream about. But behind closed doors, she feels like a fake. Keeping up appearances is exhausting, and the one person she should be able to turn to is the person pushing her away.

They say love conquers all, but lies destroy. And when the truth comes out, hearts don’t only get hurt.

They get ruined.

Note: Wicked Lies can be read as a standalone but will be better enjoyed when read in series order

About the Author

Addictive Romance

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

What a great book!! Loved to read about Kyle. His journey surprised me. Was not what i was expecting, but loved it. Knowing your not approved of, knowing you’ve been lied to, and trying to protect love is always hard. I read this book voluntarily for an honest review. This series has sucked me under. I cant wait to read the next book! Enjoy

I voluntarily reviewed a complementary copy from the author with no obligation. This is book three in the series but it can be read without reading the first two, which is what I did. I really enjoyed reading Kyle and Laurie's story and meeting the rest of his family. After reading this, I think I might go check out the first two in the series to see Rick and Lo's story.

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from the author* I liked this. Lo and Rick are still my favorite because they touched me in a way that not many other books have, but I really loved Kyle and was beyond interested in the goofball's secrets. Laurie was a good friend in Lo's book, but for some reason, I had a hard time reading her story. I think it was because I was so sad at how restricted she felt in a life that should've been something close to blessed. Kyle, the poor guy, went through a lot. I loved him a little more after this. It was interesting, definitely full of drama, but I enjoyed the ending and was overall entertained with the dialogue and high points.

I loved Wicked Lies!! Book three in the Wicked Bay series; reading Wicked Lies was like visiting old friends. I love Maverick and Lo; but really loved that this book told Kyle and Laurie’s story! It has been a long time since a book series has drawn me in like the Wicked Bay series has. L.A. Cotton is such a great storyteller! I can’t wait to see what she brings us in book four!

"Pretty perfect" ! .... that's the Stone/Prince life... isn't it? However, yet again there are secrets lying in wait to disrupt this family and bring love and trust into question. Kyle is hiding something and Laurie is scared that it spells the end of their relationship, something her mum is only to keen to help along. But Laurie also has her secrets - which secret will tear them apart? Can there be a way back? As with all the Wicked Bay series books, I loved this story... catching up with the characters again and the family dramas that come with being a Stone-Prince ! The intrigue grabbed me right from the start.. I couldn't wait to find out what the story was here between Laurie and Kyle, as I already loved the relationship they had and Kyle just draws you in with his fun-loving, easy charm, but it masked his true feelings a lot of the time and it was good to see the softer unsure side of Kyle as well. We find out quite early on what Kyle's secret is but I liked that.. I like that the story is more about how Kyle deals with it, not the angst of finding out what the secret is. The developing relationship between Maverick and Kyle is great fun to watch... I love that they 'get' each other and actually bring out the best.. (or worst lol) of each other! Maverick and Lo continue their story and I look forward to more from them. There are some new faces... Kiera is ballsy and I like her a lot.. I'm hoping to see more of her in future stories. and...I still need to know Macey's story !! Another fantastic read from L.A. Cotton that will keep you turning the pages until you finish !!

This series continues to be one of my most anticipated high school series. I loved Wicked Bay and the young adults of the Prince-Stone family. In this story we get a glimpse at Kyle and Laurie's relationship and if they will be strong enough to continue their relationship into college. Sometimes secrets have a way of destroying everything. Kyle and Laurie navigate their relationship to find what is most important to them - each other. These books are pretty hot for high school relationships, but that doesn't bother me. This series is well thought out with intriguing characters that I can't get enough of. I absolutely can't wait to see what the next book brings and who's story we will get more of! There is so many directions that Ms. Cotton could take this group and I will say that I am here for the entire ride!

I really love Kyle. Can’t get enough of him. The person I could do without was Laurie. I did not care for her at all. I felt that Kyle could have done better and would benefit by being with someone else. I needed to understand why she was the way she was. I got my explanation and I did feel for her. I still don’t care for her but I don’t dislike her as much as I did before. I can now tolerate her since she is who Kyle wanted to be with.

Another win in my book from this author. I love the Wicked Bay series. Kyle has always been so much fun to read so getting an in dept look inside him was a thrill. The love he has for Laurie is never ending. He knew she was his forever when he was 13 and he hasn't stopped loving her ever since. However new things have come to light and they are messing with his head and affecting him in ways he doesn't like. Laurie loves Kyle but she doesn't feel confident in their love and knows that he is hiding something. I loved these two. I loved them in the first Wicked Bay series and I still love them in this book. This book is a bit lighter than the first two, with a little less angst, but there is never anything wrong with that. This book was perfect for them. We get to see their struggles and feel the realness in their relationship. I have to say, I was definitely NOT a Jared fan though. He just kept stepping on Kyle's toes and exerting himself into Laurie's life. Yeah I get it, you like her. But don't be a douche, she has a boyfriend who she loves and you can never replace him! Great read. Can't wait for Wicked Games!!

I will pretty much devour any book written by LA Cotton! She never disappoints and this book is no different. Loved every moment! This is the third book in the Wicked Bay series and is focused on Kyle And Laura. They are getting ready to start their senior year of high school. They are already making plans for college and attending together. They are both, however, keeping secrets. You know how secrets are.... they never stay secret forever. Laurie is already having some doubts about following Kyle to college as he is chasing his dream of playing in the NFL. Kyle starts acting weird and distant. She happens to see a text on his phone and then the mysterious girl starts showing up around town where they happen to be. Who is this I love this series and all of these characters. While this book was geared around Kyle and Laurie, we still get Maverick and Lo from the first 2 books along with the rest of the family. Can't wait to see who shows up in book 4! I have my ideas on who it is!

A tense & surprising 4.5 star read that I LOVED!! I can honestly say I've been hooked by this series & I was definitely looking forward Kyle's story. I wasn't so sure about Laurie, I had concerns she was going to cheat I should've known that this Author wouldn't have let such a great guy fall for a horrible person!! Kyle is funny, he's always ready to crack a joke to lighten everyone's mood. He loves 3 things deeply ... His family, Laurie & Football!!! Something has happened, since we were last in Wicked Bay, that has Kyle terrified that two of those three things may be in jeopardy if he can't put an end to what's going on. And all because he told one stupid, stupid lie to Laurie!!! Laurie still feels uncomfortable that Jared & she had shared some texts after her fight with Kyle sometime before. On her part they were 100% innocent & stopped the second she realised that Jared hoped for more than friendship, she just can't seem to tell Kyle. A distance has crept between them, he's hiding something from her & she's terrified what it could be. She catches glimpses of something in eyes sometimes, but he won't open up. Committing to going to the same College seems to scary right now. She's worried she'll come second to Football & then all of the fame he'll garner. The trouble is she isn't interested in Berkeley & Pre-Law like her parents want either!! With them both trying to protect the other from what are relatively small but uncomfortable untruths & secrets, Kyle & Laurie's relationship is put on the line!!! Both of their families are also put through some tests too, especially the Stone-Prince's!!! I loved this book, it was tense & uncomfortable reading at times but in a good way I was shocked, at times, by Kyle's attitude but I'm so glad he tamed the beast!! We got to learn so much more about Laurie, I really felt for her!! Do yourself a favour & 1 click this baby, It's SO worth it!!! An easy 4.5 star's ⭐ Debbie, 1970, UK
